The Spurs have issued a qualifying offer to Davis Bertans, making him a restricted free agent, a source tells Emiliano Carchia of Sportando. Bertans, who was on a minimum-salary contract, will have a QO worth approximately $1.7MM.
Bertans, 25, played regular minutes for the Spurs in 2017/18, averaging 5.9 PPG and 2.0 RPG with a .440/.373/.816 shooting line in 77 games (14.1 MPG). A 6’10” power forward, Bertans is capable of guarding frontcourt players while also stretching the floor (1.2 threes per game).
Unless Bertans receives an aggressive offer from a rival suitor, he appears to be a good bet to remain in San Antonio. He could choose to accept his one-year qualifying offer, but it’s more likely that he and the Spurs will negotiate a new contract.
